– 12 Ice Cubes
– 1 cup Simply Orange Juice (you can also use Silk Soy Milk, Silk Pure Almond Milk, or Chocolate Milk in the place of the Orange Juice)
– 1 Banana (cut in 3 pieces)
– 10 Strawberries
– 1 Scoop Chocolate or Vanilla Protein Powder
– 2 tablespoons Jif Smooth Peanut Butter
– 1 individual-sized French Vanilla Yogurt
– Reddi Whip Whipped Cream

My family loves strawberries, so a smoothie is the perfect way to serve up a healthy and cool treat to beat the summer heat!  This recipe has some of my own personal favorite ingredients, including strawberries, peanut butter, chocolate, and a little bit of whipped cream!  Plus, I love that it’s super easy to make this smoothie!

1 – Add 12 to 14 Ice Cubes to your blender.

2 – Add 1 cup of Simply Orange Juice (you can also use Soy Milk, Almond Milk, or Chocolate Milk)

3 – Add one Banana (cut or broken into 3 pieces)

4 – Add 10 to 12 Strawberries (with green stem cut off)

5 – Add 1 scoop of Chocolate or Vanilla Protein Powder

6 – Add one individual-sized French Vanilla Yogurt

7 – Add 2 tablespoons Jif Smooth Peanut Butter

8 – Turn on blender and run until all ingredients are combined and ice is crushed.  It will have the consistency of a smoothie.  I usually run my blender for about a minute just to make sure all ingredients are crushed and combined.

9 – Pour smoothie in a glass and top with Reddi Whip Whipped Cream (if desired).  Sit back and enjoy your Easy-to-Make Super Summer Smoothie!
